Where do most of you buy your one gallon pots and soil media to grow your plants?
Thanks

I use double ground pine bark for the soil. Pots you can get from a grower supply. We never bought a small container (1&3gal). We had leftover from jobs. Usually have too many. 7gal and larger is a different story howerver. Make sure you use a good slow release fert. We use osmocote.

BWI is a grower/ greenhouse supplier. I think their HQ is in Texarkana, TX. Doubt they service up north.

Art or Ken Chouinard are just outside of town and would probably be able to set you up with the info you are looking for or sell you some product if you are just starting out.

You also have Woodside Greenhouse, Harrington Nursery, Phyllinger Farm, and PhytoEcology, all in Ridgely.

Griffin Greenhouse Supply. I know they supply the northeast, but not sure about MD. Check out their site.

treedoc1, Do you buy plants from these companies or did you search them?
